Year 7, 8 & 9 Curriculum
All pupils in their first two years at The Duston School study the core curriculum which includes English, mathematics, science, physical education, ICT and global education. The curriculum is enriched by studies in humanities subjects, art and design, music, drama and modern foreign languages. All students follow a two week timetable where each lesson is 60 minutes long.
During Year 9, students in Pathway 1 continue to study the full breath of curriculum subjects, whilst Pathway 2 students study the core curriculum and then choose 2 enrichment options.
At the end of year 9, a full consultation takes place in the form of Guided Choices between staff, pupils and parents to support the curriculum choices that students make at Key Stage Four.
Year 9 options include the following subjects; Art, Catering, German, Graphics, Resistant Materials, Textiles, Music and Drama.
